Pluck (Japanese: ついばむ Pick) is a damage-dealing Flying-type move introduced in Generation IV. It was TM88 in Generation IV to Generation V.

Effect

Generation IV

Pluck inflicts damage. If the target is holding a Berry, the user will eat the Berry and gain its effect. Pluck will not eat the target's Berry if it hits its substitute. Pluck will not consume the Berry of a target that has the Ability Sticky Hold. If the user has the Ability Klutz or is affected by Embargo, it will consume the target's held Berry without gaining its effect.

The effect of a Jaboca or Coba Berry will activate before the Berry can be stolen. Berries like Liechi or Sitrus Berries will be eaten by the attacker, regardless of them meeting their consumption requirement upon taking damage from Pluck.

Generation V onward

Pluck can hit non-adjacent opponents in Triple Battles.

The user will now receive the effects of the target's held Berry even if it has the Ability Klutz or is affected by Embargo.

Description
